  • “The third time we have stayed here but the cleanliness is now an issue.”

    Black mould on tiles in shower, between the shower tray and the glass isn’t clean again mould and lime scale. The bottom of the door frame in the bathroom needs repairing and painting. Radio didn’t work even though tested label said it worked in June. All of the skirting boards need a good wipe and the glass on both sets of french doors need a clean (definitely ruined the lovely views). Even though we were happy with the price we paid this year I certainly would not be happy with the £400 ...

    Black mould on tiles in shower, between the shower tray and the glass isn’t clean again mould and lime scale. The bottom of the door frame in the bathroom needs repairing and painting. Radio didn’t work even though tested label said it worked in June. All of the skirting boards need a good wipe and the glass on both sets of french doors need a clean (definitely ruined the lovely views). Even though we were happy with the price we paid this year I certainly would not be happy with the £400 increase for the same week next year. A shame for the poor up keep and the price changing dramatically, therefore will not be returning for the forth year.
